Aluminium Ferrule for Wire Rope - Standard Type A

How to create a simple soft eye wire rope loop.

Simple soft loops can be added to stainless steel wire by placing the aluminium ferrule over the end of the wire and looping the wire back on itself, passing back through the aluminium ferrule. Once in place use a swaging or crimping tool to compress the aluminium ferrule until it holds the wire firmly.

Creating a hard eye loop using a stainless steel thimble with an aluminium ferrule.

Step 1

Simply lace the dead end of your wire rope through your aluminium ferrule and loop the end of your wire rope around the outer groove of the thimble.

Step 2

Pass the end back through the aluminium ferrule and pull-in the dead end to fit tight around the thimble.

Finishing A Loop - Eye Using A Thimble

Step 3

Once in place, we recommend using a crimping tool to compress the aluminium ferrule firmly onto the rope to hold your thimble loop securely.

Finishing Your Thimble Loop - Eye

Once fitted we recommend you load test your wire rope assembly with a load that is equal or greater than the expected load to ensure that your loop/eye performs safely.

They do the job. You will need to cut the wire rope nice and cleanly to get the ends into these, but they grip well when crimped.

The product was fine. The annoying bit is being hassled by email to review a non-mechanical fitting worth a few pence.

Provide a good solid fix and can be crimped with Mole grips if you don't have the correct kit. Use two each time for additional security.
